Fruit Of The Month - #15: Loud-Mouth Lime

Loud-Mouth Lime

The Fruit Of The Month award for July 2011 goes to none other than Loud-Mouth Lime! LML was one of the original flavors of Pillsbury Funny Face drink mix in 1964, along with Goofy Grape, Rootin'-Tootin' Raspberry, Injun Orange, Freckle Face Strawberry and Chinese Cherry. Together they quenched a lot of thirsts in the groovy 1960s.

Here's an unopened, vintage pack from 1965-1966. This was a second series pack.

By 1967, the lime flavor was discontinued. Lefty Lemon became Lefty Lemon-Lime. Our friend Loud-Mouth Lime took on a new persona (and flavor) as Loud-Mouth Punch. Compare the two packs below. The Punch pack is from the early '70s, but it's still basically the same mascot, lime-shaped but now with a really snazzy hat.

Loud-Mouth Lime vs. Punch

Take a look at this vintage commercial on YouTube:

Several years ago, Funko put out an awesome set of Wacky Wobbler bobblehead figures, expertly designed in the likeness of six of our Funny Face friends. Loud-Mouth Lime somehow did not make the cut in that set. However, I'm happy to report that last month Funko released this wonderful new LML bobblehead!

Really cool.

Also in modern Funny Face news, there's still a cartoon series in the works, as I've posted previously on this blog. Take a look at a newly animated Loud-Mouth Lime in this cartoon short on Daily Motion.

I'm looking forward to seeing more from this new venture!

I hope you've enjoyed this Fruit Of The Month segment celebrating our little lime friend.

  1. Loud-mouth Lime rolls off the tongue way better than Loud-mouth Punch.

    But Injun Orange? Really? Wow.

  2. What a blast from the past! Thanks for sharing.
